What our guests say

We had an absolutely fantastic time on our day trip. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and the driver was excellent too. There was a good amount of time in each place and she explained everything clearly and gave us the option of free time. She also has beautiful singing in the monastery! Thank you for a great tour.

Wonderful scenic city and so much so to explore and nothing can be better if you have a very supportive, accommodating and very knowledgeable tour manager. Nvard is an absolute professional and knows how to make your trip memorable. We were a group of 12 people with 4 kids. Nvard handled the entire tour starting from Hotels/Logistics/Guide. We could actually enjoy the trip as we didnt had to manage any other hastles. Would Highly recommend her if you are planning to take a trip to this beautiful country.

We were so lucky to have Nvard and her husband Tigan (?) as our guide and driver for our short private tour of Armenia. They were lovely, helpful, funny, good company and, as is important for this review, informative, well spoken (good English) and in a short time knew what we liked. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Their vehicle was modern, comfortable and roomy. Although we were only in Armenia for 3.5 days we saw and learnt so much about this cradle of Christianity. Nvard's knowledge of the country's history and culture was excellent. I highly recommend Nvard as a guide. I should add that we felt the cost of the tour was very fair. I look forward to showing Nvard and Tigan around Sydney should they ever venture to Australia.

I must say it was wonderful experience and team taking us feels like more of family then a professional guide. Thank you very much and I will recommend all you people going solo to join them to make a memorable trip.

Did 2 tours with them, one is Garni-Geghard and Lake Sevan day tour and the one is 2 days 1 night to South Armenia (Khor Virap -Areni winery -Shake-Tatev ( night in Goris ), Khndzoresk swinging bridge-Noravank -Yerevan) Had limited time there and Nvard (the guide) was very resourceful to accommodate my schedule and find traveling partners to help lower my traveling cost. Nvard is a very knowledgeable guide with deep knowledge of each place, giving lots of background information on the places we visit. She is also very mindful of the weather conditions and make changes to itinerary so that we can tour the place in the best weather conditions. Well trusted, honest, friendly and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended to use their guide services when in Armenia.

I had a 3-day private tour with Central Tour, covering most of the major interesting spots in Armenia. Nvard is such an amazing guide - she is very knowledgable about all aspects of Armenia and always provides clear and detailed explanations wherever we went. She is also very patient - my desired itinerary requires more than 10 hours of touring time each day, yet she made it happen without any problem. During the 1st day of the tour, I forgot one of my camera lens at Khor Virap, she instantly checked with her network of tourguides to locate my lens and helped me to find it back. My driver Tigran is also amazing too - fluent English (in fact he is also a guide himself), great driving and great photography skills too. We did quite some photo shooting along the way. My experience in Armenia wouldn't have been so great without Nvard and Tigran. I highly recommend doing a tour with Central Tour as part of your visit to Armenia!

I was picked up from the hotel by Nvard, the tour guide, and Tigran the tour driver. It was a comfort to know I would be in the company of these warm and kind people for my tour. Nvard is a very knowledgeable guide so I had every detail explained to me and answers to any question I had. If you like mountain scenery you will love this tour, I was lucky enough to see eagles, hawks, and a jackal. If it is architecture and history that interest you then you will be equally satisfied with this tour which includes the key historical sites and monuments. The accommodation was excellent, and on the night in Tbilisi you can spend the evening exploring the city. I do not hesitate to recommend this trip, and the staff are kind and caring.

We had an amazing time with our tour guide Tatev. She is very knowledgeable and patient when answering to our questions about Armenia, and just really nice to talk with. Overall really pleasant experience and I would definitely recommended this day tour to my friend 🙂 The whole tour is about 6-7 hrs. We got back in Yerevan around 3-4pm.

My friend and I had a very enjoyable day having taken this day tour. Our guide Nune Mnatsakanyan was very knowlegeable and answer every question we threw at her. She even explained the Armenian genocide with full of passion. The attractions we were taken to were absolutely awesome and they were ancient as they can be. We were given time to explore in our pace after Nune explained everything. We also had a very nice lunch in a traditional Armenian place and the dining was something I haven’t experienced before. I highly recommend this tour when you visit Yerevan.


Derby, UK

It was worth to join the tour for a day. The guide was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Sevan Lake, Garni Temple and Geghard Monastery were beautiful and the guide's rich knowledge helped us to get to know a lot more about the places. In particular, the Armenian BBQ was the most fantastic one that everyone should try. It is not a whole day trip, so it was more relaxed and enjoyable. If you sill have energy left after the trip, you can visit the city center.
